O’Rourke on Gun Control: ‘We Can’t Just Blame One Political Party for This, Democrats Have Had Control of Every Level of Power’

‘Democrats have had control of every level of power within recent history and did not avail themselves of it to address these issues’

O'ROURKE: "One can be forgiven for being tempted to give up, that after Sandy Hook, 6 and 7-year-old children in the classroom, after Marjorie Stone and after Santa Fe High School, after El Paso — you can name so many. And many of you have said this and it's so important. We should also then elevate those who never make the headlines. The shootings aren't sensational. They've taken their own lives. They're a toddler who was accidentally killed by a brother or a sister. But in the face of all that, the level of inaction and indifference — and we can't just blame one political party for this. Democrats have had control of every level of power within recent history and it did not avail themselves of it to address these issues."
